With more than 80 film and television roles to her credit, Judy Greer, 38, isn't fazed playing Miss Desjardin in the remake of the horror classic Carrie this month, then taking on the role of female chimp Cornelia in the action film Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, set for next summer. Her other recent big-screen titles include Playing for Keeps, Jeff, Who Lives at Home, and The Descendants. Look for Greer's first book, I Don't Know What You Know Me From: Confessions of a Co-Star, a collection of humorous essays, in 2014. She voices Cheryl in FX's animated sitcom series Archer and continues as assistant and mistress Kitty Sanchez in Arrested Development on Netflix -- both shows are in their fourth seasons. Greer also hosts her own Yahoo! webisode series, Reluctantly Healthy. Born in Detroit, this former classical Russian ballet student is now stepmom to two teenagers and lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Dean E. Johnsen, an executive producer of Real Time with Bill Maher.

With A New Husband And Twin Babies On The Way, Marcia Cross Of Desperate
Housewives Has Finally Found Happiness At 44. How She Did It.
She doesn't cook, and she isn't well organized She laughs easily and likes
hanging out in cargo pants. No one would describe her as high-strung. In fact,
Marcia Cross is pretty much the antithesis of Bree Van De Kamp, the fierce,
tightly wound perfectionist she plays so convincingly on Desperate
Housewives . While Bree finds solace...
Wash your face every night before bed, taking off all that makeup. When my skin starts to break out I use Cetaphil Antibacterial Cleansing Bar, and it clears up in 2 days.
Q. When you're overworked and stressed out, how do you reset and unwind?
I do Bikram yoga, which takes time because after being in that heat, I have to shower. It's been saving my life lately, though, and I try to do it 3 days a week. With Bikram, I know what I'm going to get in the way of a class, no matter what town I'm in or what country. It helps me sleep at night. I also do transcendental meditation, and I can do that in my trailer, on set, at lunch. Doing 20 minutes in the morning and afternoon is ideal.
Q. What's your favorite healthy snack and why?
Strawberries are sweet. It was hard to get them when I was growing up in Michigan.
